Yesterday, I launched Looking for Wisdom, my new philosophy project, and I’m delighted to already have a load of people signing up to get weekly doses of philosophy sent directly to their inboxes. The idea behind Looking for Wisdom is to provide a growing database of philosophical resources, so that readers can connect with the world’s greatest philosophers and philosophies. My approach is determinedly eclectic: I want to feature the big-hitters (hello there, Socrates… nice to see you Confucius), as well bringing to light thinkers who are often less widely-known (I’m looking at you Aspasia and Ptahhotep).
Alongside the growing database of Philosopher Files (which will be updated every Thursday, and which will always be free), from January, I’ll be offering a rolling series of paid philosophy courses, so that you can join the growing Looking for Wisdom philosophical community, and explore some of life’s most pressing themes in the company of your fellow philosophers, and get to know some of history’s greatest/strangest minds.
The site runs on the beautiful Ghost platform, which is a dream to write in. I have had fun putting together an editorial calendar of philosophers to feature in the coming months. So if you want to receive regular bursts of philosophy, sign up today!
